I had the opportunity to work on a small furniture makeover project using Velvet Finishes Paint by Kellie Smith of Design Asylum Blog.   I thought it would be fun to bother my friend, Kathy, and give her desk chair a little attention.

Kathy and I were excited with the amazingly bright selection of paint colors offered by Velvet Finishes.

We choose “Ethereal” for the project.

Let me tell you that Velvet Finishes is terrific because it is so easy-peasy.  There is no priming, no wax at the end like chalk paint, and the paint goes on very smooth.  There is a very simple first step that involves spraying the chair with the “Ready” product – I just sprayed the chair, let it sit for a minute, and wiped it off.  (It was so easy, I was wondering if I did it wrong!  But NO – it really is that easy!)

Next, just shake the paint well and brush it on!

We did find that we needed to add a few coats to the areas that had been previously distressed.  The difference in the wood layers was showing through. Velvet Finishes 5 : Pursuing Vintage

But after a few coats of this quick-drying paint, we were ready to reupholster the seat and check out our finished product!  Isn’t it adorable?!

Kathy and I thought the chair looked just too cute, and were excited to try it out at her desk.  However, once we got the chair inside, we discovered the color was a bit brighter than we anticipated, and just didn’t look right in the same spot.

However, we realized that Kathy’s daughter would be thrilled to have a pretty pink chair!

The chair looks adorable in her daughter’s bedroom – such a lucky girl!

Velvet Finishes was easy to use, and the color selection is so fun.  I would say that if you’re looking for a chalk-paint-type of paint (not glossy and easy to use!) Velvet Finishes is a great option, and offers colors that are SO much more fun than chalk paint.  Thank you so much to Velvet Finishes for supplying the paint for this fun project!

Please stop over at the next blog, ConfettiStyle, to check out Shelly’s makeover.
